Hoover Disaster Drill
Joint Training Exercise
Emergency responders from Hoover and the surrounding areas took to the streets near the Riverchase Galleria to make sure the area was prepared should a tornado strike.
"In reality, if this area was hit by a tornado, we've seen nationwide it could be a couple of hours before you could actually get vehicles in here because you've got to clean debris out of the way," Hoover Police Captain Jim Coker said.
Agencies tested all aspects of disaster response, including incident command, rescuing and treating victims, traffic control, and communications.
A special thank you to Captain Coker for sharing these great pictures!
